DORSET, Minn. --A 5-year-old boy who earned the distinction of being the youngest mayor in America has lost his re-election bid.
BobbyTufts was elected two years ago to be the honorary mayor of Dorset, Minnesota, but he failed to win a third-term.
He says being mayor was a tough job, but he'll miss the perks and the power.
"Well, I have to look at the cameras so much I can't be googly eyes. But nobody could arrest me, not even a cop," Tufts said.
He lost to 16-year-old Eric Mueller.
Tufts has a two-year-old brother who says he's ready to throw his hat into the race for mayor during next year's election.
